Conker's Bad Fur Day dev Chris Seavor returns to Nintendo with eShop game Rusty Pup

2D platformer with a hint of Lemmings.


Conker's Bad Fur Day developer Chris Seavor has returned to Nintendo platforms with eShop game Rusty Pup.

Seavor, who created the cult adult N64 game and worked on many others while at Rare, told NintendoLife that The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup is a 2D platformer with dark elements and a hint of Lemmings.

"It's a very sad tale," he said. "It's not dark as in 'mature' - it's not got swearing in it, or anything like that. It's quite a serious and adult story, but still a fun and hopefully playable game with lots going on. There will be moments of dark humour, but nothing gory."

Seavor is working with fellow ex-Rare developer Shawn Pile on Rusty Pup, which is set for the Wii U and 3DS eShops at some point next year.

Chris Seavor left Rare in January 2011 after 17 years at the legendary UK developer. While there he worked on most of the studio's games: Killer Instinct, Perfect Dark and Banjo-Kazooie included. But he's best known for taking the cute Twelve Tales: Conker 64 and turning it into the profanity and poo packed N64 adventure Conker's Bad Fur Day.

After Rare was bought by Microsoft he remade Conker's Bad Fur day for the Xbox. Conker: Live & Reloaded launched in 2005 with dumbed down content and Live-enabled multiplayer.

After that, Seavor headed up multiple Xbox 360 projects that never saw the light of day, including Conker 2, Perfect Dark Core, Ordinary Joe and Urchin. He saw Kameo 2, a motion control game called Savannah and more fall by the wayside.

Now, he is master of his own universe having founded indie developer Gory Detail. His first game as an indie, Parashoot Stan, is a top down endless runner for iOS devices.
